Natalie Leach

Founder and HR Consultant


After 20 years of hands-on, in-house HR Generalist and Consulting experience, gained in various South African industries, I stepped into Solopreneurship to guide organisations with bespoke HR solutions and empower individuals to grow with tools that I have learned on my work/ life journey.
People have always intrigued me so I have made them my business! I love innovating, restoring, and setting your business and individuals up for success!
To see humans perform at their peak makes me tick!
I believe that when you value the humans who work for you, you will have them eating out of your hands.

Executive Talent Sourcing

We have retained the services of Hands-on Human resources to gain easy access to a competent HR Professional. We consult when faced with incidents requiring disciplinary actions and labour related processes, ensuring we comply with fair legal process, and take appropriate action. They submit our Skills development and Employment Equity compliance reports and guiding us in navigating the unchartered waters in response to COVID-19. They review our policies and procedures and provide us with HR related content as and when required. Their services have proved valuable and I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of HR services.

When Hands-on Human Resources arrived in the building I felt instant relief. Our business was in the middle of a Re-structure and re-capitalisation. Our HR Head was moving to New Zealand. A significant challenge for all. Natalie got stuck in immediately! She successfully sourced and placed a competent incumbent to Head up our HR function. She assessed and re-wrote policy and provided a warm human approach during very trying times. She is a competent, highly skilled and reliable HR expert with a warm, professional approach. She effectively executed on all our HR needs, ensuring a smooth transition for all. I will always remain immensely grateful to Natalie for her calm and efficiency and the way she simply got the job done. I highly recommend her services.

Executive Talent sourcing

During the re-organisation of our business units it was apparent that we needed to evaluate our current job functions to assess the talent in our business before investing in new hires. Natalie rolled out a comprehensive job evaluation exercise, providing standardised graded role profiles providing us with insight and clarity to make cost effective decisions. The project was handled effectively and professionally. Natalie has a wealth of HR experience and provides a reliable service. You are in good hands. Thank you Natalie.
